  Hard drive health monitoring for IDE, Serial ATA, SCSI drives
JustNow™

JustNow! is a completely new technology that allows you to find out the state of health and performance rate of your hard drives, immediately, both when you start the program for the first time and when you start it again! There is no need to control disks over a long period of time! No analogous software allows this! Thanks to this technology, HDDlife® also shows the health and performance level as a percentage as compared to a new disk.

JustNow™ - show health status immediately after first run
Multilingual interface
Check the Internet weekly for a new version

HDDlife® will run a small program once a week to check for a new version on the Internet. If a new version of HDDlife® is found, it offers you the option to download and install it.

Automatic program update via Internet
Detailed information about the health and performance percentage

The professional version of HDDlife® shows detailed information about the health and performance percentage of your hard drive in the progress bar, the free version shows only the overall state of the drive.

Detailed information about the health and performance percentage
A thermometer for your disk

HDDlife® can show you the highest temperature the drive has reached for the entire period of its life (if the drive supports this feature). It will allow you to determine how the drive has been working so far, whether it has ever overheated before and whether it will have failures in the future.

Show hard drives temperature
Show hard drive health in the system tray
Simultanously show temperature and hard drive health
AnywhereView™ technology
Show a hint in the tray only if something is wrong

After the program checks the health of your hard drives according to schedule, a hint appears in the system tray - see the screenshot to the right. If this mode is on, this hint will appear only if the health of some hard drive is in question. No hint will be displayed if everything is OK. Thus, HDDlife® does not distract you from your work and will disturb you only if it detects any problems.

Show warnings only in case if hard drive health not ok
Remote monitoring and notifications

Monitoring the health of hard drives on networks in enterprises is also a fairly important issue. Repairing a computer after a hard drive failure can take a lot of time of highly qualified and expensive personnel. HDDlife® allows you to detect the pre-failure state of a hard drive and replace it before it gets out of order. Network administrators can configure the parameters for notifications about the dangerous state of hard drives. Such notifications can be sent over the network (similar to net send...) or by e-mail, which makes monitoring as remote as you need it.
